I don’t know what it is about Valentines’ Day that I love so much. Probably because it is about love and showing your love. After all, Valentine’s Day has long been celebrated as the month of romance, and it is both an ancient Christian and Roman tradition. What does a Jewish girl from California give a shit about Valentine’s Day? Why not? All I know is that this world needs a lot more love. Whether it’s your husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, grandparents, whoever, take some time to really go out of your way to show them how much you love them. Especially this year since the entire world is upside down.
Here are some of my favorites that I have purchased, researched or want. Click on the pink description and it will take you directly to the website. Happy V Day to you.
